It's a sparkaversary in a few days and I have been doing some goal setting using the other goals tool. I'm slowly getting the hang of it. Usually try to catch up with Sparkfriends but am short of time at the mo. Catch up later.
Today is the first day of summer and it has been warm and sunny with a mild breeze. I am enjoying the garden at the moment, before it all dries up. It's a big week and I'll be glad when tomorrow is over. We are kind of winding down at work for o... Read more
I am so tired today, it's been a big week already. Tomorrow is the first day of summer and I am so glad of the last few days which have been warm and still. After work today DH & I bought fish & chips and went down to the waterfront to eat them ... Read more
Ooooh my hips are feeling something I did yesterday. But I am otherwise feeling extremely good this morning. I am headed for the garden soon but wanted to post, for my future edification, about the improvement in my comfort and freedom of movem... Read more
Just got in from a swim followed by Zumba. Felt I had been dragging the chain a bit this week and wanted to make up for my slackness. Now feel nicely tired, and ready for the rest of the day.
How good am I, after a dinner party last night!?... Read more
Lots to do today and tomorrow. I have some writing to do and I think I will need to come in to work in the weekend to get the necessary quiet to make sufficient progress. Our good friends are coming for dinner tomorrow night and there is a lot ... Read more
I have felt so sleepy today I can hardly get moving. Everywhere flowers are out and I have had hay fever. So I am taking an antihistamine. It's not supposed to make you drowsy but after 10 days, I am feeling very sluggish. Unless it's the extra... Read more
I have been using a very warm pool at the complex down the road from our place: it is so warm it is like swimming in the bath. Using this pool has meant that I can never tell myself I don't feel like a swim because it will be too cold, it is nev... Read more
Yesterday was a lovely day, ideal for gardening but I spent it very quietly after a big night out on Friday night. We got home after two, which is quite a stretch for us these days. It was a fun night, and I don't regret it, but my gardening pla... Read more
Starting to make use of the SP nutrition tracker a bit more than before. I've been tracking lots of days, but not really planning my meals as I should. I figure if I get a little routine goinging it will make it easier to fit in more stuff in t... Read more
Spent much of yesterday gardening, and finally the sun came out. As we gardened, the local birds came out too. The tui in particular are enjoying our flowering flaxes, and even with my point & shoot camera I got a few shots of them.
I had a good night last night and enjoyed watching all the talented young things in their cool clothes. No photos of the show, sorry, but here is one of the star of my garden at the moment, introducing...
... which is how come I am blogging and not titivating myself. Off to drinks with friends then a fashion show by graduates of the university where my husband works.
Gotta dash, have t... Read more
It is true I did Zumba off that 300 grams, how amazing, and cheap learning for me that holidays can be fatal for weight loss. A week is easy to recover from, but we have a three week trip coming up, so will definitely put more strategies in pla... Read more
